Whether your toilet is clogged or has a malfunctioning float device, the very first step to take is turning off the water circulation. The water shutoff is located at the end of the water line on the side of the bathroom, as well as should be transformed completely counterclockwise. As soon as the water circulation into the bathroom is stopped, the blockage or device failure can be dealt with.
Unclogging a bathroom might be as simple as using company upright pressure with a plunger. More major obstructions might call for an auger, which can be utilized to fish out particles that is obstructing the flow of water. As soon as the obstruction is removed, reset the float system as well as activate the water valve.
Stopped-up sink drainpipe
The best way to prevent a clogged sink drainpipe is to prevent discarding oil, coffee premises, and other thick material down the tubes. Nevertheless, also the most cautious house owner often needs to handle this annoyance. If utilizing a plunger to clear product from the drainpipe does not work an auger (or “serpent’) might be needed. An auger is easy to use with a little practice as well as determination.
By much the most destructive plumbing emergency, a ruptured pipe can release up to 100 gallons in an 8 hour period. If a pipeline does ruptured, immediately closed off the water supply.
Your technique to taking care of a leaky pipe depends on where specifically the water is leaking. If water leakages from the pipe, a rubber patch might do the technique.
Sump pump failing
If the sump pump is not working, get rid of the screen to see to it particles is not avoiding activity of the impeller. Your pump may not be obtaining enough electrical power or have a faulty float switch if the impeller is clear. If the pump has been running for a prolonged period of time, it might be closing down due to thermal overload.
Water heater malfunction
Common water heater issues consist of a dripping storage tank, water that is either too hot or as well cool, water that has a weird shade or odor, as well as noises coming from the hot water heater. Call a professional plumber for aid if the heating unit is leaking. If there is no leakage, purging the water container may solve color as well as smell troubles, as well as improve the heater’s efficiency.
The water shutoff is located at the bottom of the water line on the side of the bathroom, and must be transformed completely counterclockwise. Your method to dealing with a dripping pipe depends on where exactly the water is leaking. If water leakages from the pipe, a rubber patch might do the trick. Common water heating unit problems include a dripping container, water that is either also warm or also cold, water that has a weird color or smell, and also noises coming from the water heating unit. If there is no leak, purging the water tank may solve color and odor problems, as well as improve the heater’s effectiveness.
Louise Bastock, Assistant Editor at Lonely Planet, recently returned from a trip to Taiwan.
Tell us more… When I used to think about Taiwan, the dominant images in my mind would be of its capital city Taipei, specifically the skyscraper-studded skyline against a blue or lilac sunset, or the twinkly Tokyo-esque lights of its streets and lanes. But, beyond this vast metropolis, there is so much more to discover. Blasted up from the ocean by volcanic activity, Taiwan is a fertile ground for breathtaking natural landscapes. With that in mind, I set off for northeastern Taiwan to explore the island’s capital as well as its wild wonders, and expand the image in my mind’s eye of what this tiny island nation has to offer – spoiler alert: a lot!
Good grub? The stand-out superstar of Taipei’s skyline is Taipei 101; formerly the world’s tallest building, it bursts through the high-rises like a futuristic bamboo shoot and was the perfect setting for dinner on our first night. Despite her humble origins, first operating from a Taipei back alley diner in 1977, the owner of Shin Yeh restaurant now commands the 85th floor of Taipei 101, serving up elegant, contemporary creations inspired by traditional Taiwanese home-style cooking.
Though seemingly a far cry from the glamour of Taipei 101, my second favourite meal was, surprisingly, at a shopping mall, beneath the tower itself. Prepare to battle wayward queues and huge crowds of hungry people if you want to eat at Din Tai Fung. This Michelin-starred restaurant (yes, you heard right, a Michelin-starred restaurant in a shopping mall) is famed for its xiǎolóng bāo (steamed pork dumplings), but, in all honesty, absolutely everything they brought to the table was insanely delicious. With windows looking into the kitchen, you can spend hours digesting your dumplings and watching the chefs meticulously craft these bite-sized beauties.
Quintessential experience… With so much nature to see – from marble cliff faces to emerald oceans of forest – hiking is a quintessential experience in northeastern Taiwan. Our first taster was the 500-step slog up Elephant Mountain in Taipei – totally worth it to watch the sunset over the city and get my own snaps of the skyline. We also hit the hiking trails that lace through Taroko National Park (roughly a three-hour drive from Taipei). The scenery is wilder here and even though it can get blustery on the peaks, the strong wind does help disperse some of the eggy smell from the region’s sulphuric vents – a small price to pay for hiking around hot spring territory.
Any incredible accommodation? Speaking of hot springs: our last night was spent in the stunning Gaia Hotel, where each room came equipped with its own personal hot pool. After a long day of hiking and thigh-busting stair climbing (stairs are synonymous with hiking in Taiwan), it was a dream to be able to flop from bed to bath (grabbing a glass of wine en route) and recline in style in the comfort and privacy of my own room.
If you do one thing… don a wetsuit and helmet and give river tracing a go. Known in other parts of the world as canyoning, this activity earns its more poetic moniker in Taiwan; without wishing to geek out too much, the landscapes here could easily have been plucked from the pages of Tolkein’s The Lord of The Rings (Rivendell, eat your heart out).
We spent a whole afternoon wading through the Sa Po Dang river in Hualien, jumping off huge boulders, squeezing through tight crevices and scaling small waterfalls before stopping for tea, snacks and snorkelling around a secluded turquoise pool. It’s a fantastic way to not just view the landscapes from afar, but to get in amongst them and experience them up-close.
Bizarre encounter… From fine dining in spellbinding landmarks, soaking in my private hot spring and revelling in Mother Nature’s gifts, I leave you with Taipei’s epic toilet cafe! Enlisting every faucet – oops, I mean facet – of bathroom decor, the Modern Toilet Restaurant is a veritable playground for anyone with a sense of humour – and, at times, a strong stomach. After excusing myself from the table to use the actual bathroom, I was crying with laughter on my return to find on my delicately chosen chocolate ice cream piled in huge swirls, sprinkled with all manner of brown biscuits goodies, came served in a yellow porcelain squat toilet. If, like me, you think this might just be the best place in the whole world, bag yourself a souvenir from their shop which sells all manner of poop-themed paraphernalia.
Louise Bastock travelled to Taiwan with support from the Taiwan Tourism Bureau and China Airlines. Lonely Planet contributors do not accept freebies in exchange for positive coverage.
Aside from a few forays to France, the furthest my maternal grandparents travelled was Pembrokeshire, Wales (repeat visits to a wind-buffeted static caravan in Croes-goch, if you must know). Just a generation later, my parents’ peregrinations had encompassed most of Western Europe.
As of writing, I’ve visited about 50 countries (I counted them up once, but have forgotten the total), most of them during two spells of backpacking – first across the US, then around the world – plus others as and when the opportunity arose.
My wife has been to twice that number of destinations, and I’d wager that a significant proportion of the people who comprise Lonely Planet’s extended community – staff and contributors, followers and fans – have led equally footloose lives.
The trend continues, too: my son, four, and daughter, one, have already visited many more places than my grandparents did in their entire lives. In fact, Harvey probably covered more miles in utero than they managed in total.
Our expanding horizons
You can visualise each generation’s expanding horizons as a series of concentric circles, like ripples spreading out from a stone dropped in a pond; assuming that trend doesn’t go into reverse (which is possible, of course, given variables like climate change), where will the edge of my children’s known universe lie? Just as I have explored the far side of this planet, might they explore the far side of another world?
It’s not as far-fetched as it sounds. As it often does, the stuff of science fiction has become the stuff of science fact: the race for space is more competitive now than it has been at any time since Neil Armstrong took that famous first step on the surface of the Moon, an epoch-defining moment that happened 50 years ago this July.
From moonshots to Mars
The US government recently vowed to revisit our lonesome natural satellite within five years, but the real action is arguably elsewhere as a trio of companies bankrolled by billionaires – Richard Branson’s Virgin Galactic, Jeff Bezos’ Blue Origin and Elon Musk’s SpaceX – compete to conquer the final frontier.
The obstacles are formidable; the progress is remarkable. Whether or not we witness commercial space travel take off in 2019 (in both senses of the phrase), the expert analysis of Stanford University’s Professor G. Scott Hubbard – a former director of NASA’s Ames Research Center – suggests that we stand on the threshold of a new era.
After the moonshot, the US wants to send astronauts to Mars. And then? Because we won’t stop there. Michael Collins, who piloted the Apollo 11 Command Module around the Moon as Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin bounded across its sterile surface, expressed this ever so well: ‘It’s human nature to stretch, to go, to see, to understand,’ he said. ‘Exploration is not a choice, really; it’s an imperative.’
Or as another Buzz might say: to infinity and beyond.
The Grand Tour redux
So will my children ever enjoy a Grand Tour of the Solar System, as envisaged in NASA’s charming Visions of the Future posters? (Do check them out.) Will they stand in the shadow of Mars’ Olympus Mons, which rears to more than twice the height of Everest? Will they gape at the raging auroras of Jupiter, hundreds of times more powerful than our own Northern Lights? Will they sail the methane lakes of Titan, Saturn’s most enigmatic moon?
Alas, no. If it comes to pass, such a journey would be the preserve of a privileged few for many generations; just as the original Grand Tour of Europe was restricted to the aristocracy, so a round-trip of our galactic neighbours would remain beyond the reach of all but a coterie of plutocrats for the foreseeable future.
There’s a fair chance, however, that my children’s generation will see the curvature of the Earth from a sub-orbital flight, and some of them might, just might, leave a footprint on the Moon (thanks to Wallace and Gromit, Harvey already spends a lot of time speculating about this possibility).
A mote of dust
In his exquisite book Pale Blue Dot, Carl Sagan predicts we will eventually evolve into a spacefaring species, exploring the Milky Way in much the same way as we once sailed this planet’s uncharted seas. But there is nothing triumphalist about his vision; in fact, that dot – the Earth photographed from the Voyager 1 spacecraft; ‘a mote of dust suspended in a sunbeam’ as Sagan describes it – proves to be a profoundly humbling sight.
It’s a stance shared by the UK’s current Astronomer Royal, Martin Rees, who argues that we should avoid the term ‘space tourism’ altogether. According to Rees, that formula of words gives us an excuse to ignore the perilous predicament of our planet, misleadingly implying that we could start again elsewhere once this world has been utterly exploited and exhausted.
Space excites me; perhaps it excites you, too. I think that’s because, from Star Trek to Star Wars, our culture often depicts it in a way that fits neatly into a traveller’s conceptual model: it’s the realm of the new exotic, the absolute last word when it comes to getting off the beaten track we call… home.
You can no more suppress our species’ longing to reach the stars than prevent a curious child from exploring the boundaries of its world. Sooner or later, we will boldly go – and not just astronauts or the ultra-rich, but ordinary people like me and you. But when we do, amid all the excitement, let’s not forget our point of origin.
In the words of Sagan from 25 years ago, let’s remember that: ‘Our planet is a lonely speck in the great enveloping cosmic dark. In our obscurity, in all this vastness, there is no hint that help will come from elsewhere to save us from ourselves … Like it or not, for the moment the Earth is where we make our stand.’
In this guest post, Stanford University’s Professor G. Scott Hubbard – former Director of NASA’s Ames Research Center, founding editor-in-chief of the New Space journal, and author of Exploring Mars: Chronicles from a Decade of Discovery – looks at whether the travel industry is heading for the final frontier.
Having been active in the US space program for 45 years, both with NASA and now Stanford, I’ve seen many proposals suggesting that personal space travel is right around the corner. While this topic has been discussed in science fiction for more than 60 years, making such an experience a reality has been hampered by significant obstacles, both technical and financial. However, during the last decade or two, the world has seen the emergence of wealthy space entrepreneurs who have hired top-notch engineers. Those teams may well now be on the verge of creating space travel for the (well-heeled) extreme adventurer.
Where is outer space?
The usual definition is that space begins at 100 kilometres/60 miles above the surface of the Earth where air is almost non-existent, and the clutch of gravity can be escaped. As a practical matter, NASA awards astronaut wings for any pilot that exceeds 50 miles even if he/she does not orbit Earth. (This is called a sub-orbital flight). For comparison, the US Space Shuttle flew at about 300 kilometres/188 miles); the International Space Station (ISS) orbits Earth at 250 miles; from the Earth to the Moon averages about 238,000 miles, and Mars is nearly 140 million miles away! All of these distances and destinations represent some form of space travel, but as you might imagine, the degree of difficulty increases radically the further one goes. As of this writing, over 500 people have been to space as defined above; the vast majority (355) on the Shuttle. But only 18 people have flown to the Moon. And of those, only 12 have walked on the lunar surface. No human has ever travelled to Mars.
What is a space tourist?
All of the people cited above had extensive training and were a member of some nation’s space program. Currently, only the US, Russia and China have the independent ability to launch someone into space. The notion of a private citizen with little or no special training going to space went from science fiction to fact with the trip by billionaire Dennis Tito to the ISS in 2001, aboard a Russian vehicle. A total of seven people have made this journey for a reported cost of USD$20m to $40m per trip. Clearly, this expense is out of the reach of all but the ultra-wealthy. So what about some less ambitious (and less expensive) trip to space – the travel to 50 to 60 miles in a so-called sub-orbital trajectory?
Who’s in the game?
Space tourism as a trip to the edge of space (50 to 60 miles) with immediate return received a major boost with the Ansari X-Prize, which awarded $10m to any non-government group that could ‘build and launch a spacecraft capable of carrying three people to 100 kilometres above the Earth’s surface, twice within two weeks’. The prize was won in 2004 by a team funded by billionaire Paul Allen (the co-founder of Microsoft) using a design by the iconoclastic engineer Burt Rutan. The team was joined by another billionaire – Richard Branson of Virgin Group fame. Shortly after winning, Branson announced that a new company, Virgin Galactic, using the Rutan design, would soon begin offering sub-orbital flights for six people (and two pilots), providing four minutes of weightlessness. Another company, XCOR Aerospace, formed during the same period, began to develop a smaller vehicle that would carry one pilot and passenger. Finally, the world’s richest person, Jeff Bezos founder of Amazon, quietly created the company Blue Origin with similar goals in 2000. In the sparse public reports from Blue Origin, their first market is sub-orbital tourism, followed by orbital flight and trips to the Moon. Bezos has said he is spending about $1bn a year on Blue Origin.
What’s the price point?
Virgin Galactic has given a price of about $200,000 per person. XCOR Aerospace (which has since suspended operations) planned to provide a similar flight for reportedly $50,000. (Independent surveys have indicated that extreme adventure with a price tag of $50,000 would begin to attract a great deal of interest.) Blue Origin’s price tag is said to be $250,000. It is worth noting that the other high-profile space entrepreneur, Elon Musk and his company SpaceX, has not entered the sub-orbital business. However, in a public speech in 2016 (which you can read in New Space for free), Musk predicted he would be able to send individuals to Mars for about $140,000.
What are the risks?
Travel to space is inherently risky, but then so is climbing Mt Everest. During the 135 flights of the Shuttle program, there were two major accidents with loss of crew and vehicle: Challenger in 1986 and Columbia in 2003. By that measure, the chance of dying in a trip to orbit is around 1 ½%. One would assume that a sub-orbital flight would be safer, but the initial flights of Branson’s Virgin Galactic SpaceShipTwo have already produced one test pilot fatality. High-speed rocketry with propulsion of controlled chemical explosions is still a challenge. In addition, there are the biomedical risks of subjecting a ‘normal’ population to some of the rigours of space travel: high accelerations up to eight times Earth’s gravity, weightlessness where some experience debilitating space sickness and greater than average radiation exposure. Fortunately, experiments by Dr James Vanderploeg from the University of Texas indicate that individuals of ages 18 to 85 with a variety of common issues (artificial joints, controlled hypertension, pacemaker implants, etc) can easily withstand simulated trips using ground centrifuges and parabolic aeroplane flights. This can also be read in New Space.
When will this happen?
The sub-orbital space tourism community has collectively been surprised that it is now almost 15 years since the X-Prize was won, yet there are no regular flights of SpaceShipTwo or the New Shephard of Blue Origin. The answer mostly lies in the realm of technical issues; in a way, it is ‘rocket science’. Virgin Galactic has struggled to find a propulsion system that will operate smoothly to propel the six passengers to at least 50 miles. However, a very recent successful test in February of 2019 gives an indication that Virgin Galactic may be almost ready. Blue Origin has been very secretive about their progress, but it appears from test flights that the New Shephard is also nearing operational status.
Barring another accident, I think 2019 will see the first tourist flights to the edge of space and back. All it will take is $200,000 and the willingness to sign an ‘informed consent’ document!

Because the iphone has proven to be a widely popular item on the consumer electronic and computer system market, it is no surprise that there are a variety of iphone devices that have actually debuted on the marketplace. Now, some might be dismissive of the advent of the accessories seeing much of the devices as unnecessary (this, by the way, is a completely inaccurate notion, albeit one held by lots of who have slowly become negative customers).
There are a number of important devices that provide terrific value to extending the life of the iphone. Granted, the owners of the iphone seriously need to think about taking appropriate care of the iphone and its accessories in order to preserve the functionality of the iphone.
Iphone devices are not going to be worth much to you or your iphone’s operating if they are not effectively maintained. Think about the following: if you leave your iphone accessories by an open window and it rains, the devices are going to be damaged. (On second thought, it may have already took place a couple of times by now) There is an ethical, nevertheless, to the example provided: if you are going to invest into a series of crucial devices, they should be correctly taken care of or the loan investment on not only the devices, however the iphone as well will be utterly lost.
Of course, there will be those who feel that iphone devices may be rather out of their budget plan of affordability. In order to drive at this decision, one should separate those items that are helpful in the iphone’s operation such as battery chargers vs. those items that are not completely essential such as bring cases.
Because the iphone has actually shown to be a commonly popular product on the customer electronic and computer market, it is no surprise that there are a number of iphone devices that have debuted on the market. Given, the owners of the iphone seriously require to think about taking correct care of the iphone and its accessories in order to maintain the performance of the iphone.
Iphone devices are not going to be worth much to you or your iphone’s functioning if they are not properly preserved.
The ever-present devices that seem to track all our moves can be annoying, intrusive or worse, but for heart failure patients, tiny wearable cameras could prove life-enhancing, according to research presented today at ESC Congress 2019 together with the World Congress of Cardiology.
Minute-by-minute images captured by these little “eyes” provide valuable data on diet, exercise and medication adherence, that can then be used to fine-tune self-management.
“The cameras bring more information to health professionals to really understand the lived experience of heart failure patients and their unique challenges,” stated study first author Susie Cartledge, a registered nurse and dean’s postdoctoral research fellow at Deakin University’s Institute for Physical Activity and Nutrition in Melbourne, Australia. “This is a level of detail and context that will help us tailor their care.”
Something as seemingly trivial as drinking too much fluid—which cameras can “see”—can tax an already burdened heart, leading to a potentially deadly hospital stay.
Heart failure is a chronic condition where the heart isn’t pumping as well as it should be, so the body isn’t getting enough oxygen. There is no cure and limited treatments, meaning that self-care is paramount. Healthcare professionals have traditionally gleaned information on patients’ daily activities from self-reports, which can be unreliable. This “life-logging technique” is still in its infancy, but studies have shown that it gleans useful data.
For this feasibility study, Dr. Cartledge and her colleagues recruited 30 individuals with advanced (NYHA II-III) heart failure from a Melbourne cardiology practice. Participants’ mean age was 73.6, and 60% were male.
Patients attached a wide-angle “narrative clip” to their clothing at about chest height. The cameras, barely two centimetres squared, were worn from morning to night and took still images every 30 seconds.
“You can really just see the context of the patient’s world from chest height,” explained Dr. Cartledge. “We saw their bingo score cards, their families, their friends but we only saw them if they stood in front of a mirror. We felt like we had been with the patient for the day.”
The images revealed no “scandalous” behaviour on the part of the participants, said Dr. Cartledge, but they did highlight areas for improvement. Patients in general needed to increase their exercise and reduce sedentary behaviour that was typically associated with screen time. Participants could also generally improve their diets, for example there was one participant who could cut back on diet sodas, beers at bingo, and cigarettes.
“We can use this information to have a discussion with the patient. Yesterday, one man’s pills sat out on his table for ages before he took them,” continued Dr. Cartledge, who would counsel this patient to take his medication sooner.
Almost all of the participants (93%) said they were happy wearing the camera (the remaining two were neutral). Some went so far as to report that they were reassured “someone was watching over them” or that the cameras spurred them to engage in “good behaviour.” All participants had the option of deleting photos before the research team saw them.
But capturing the images and getting consent from patients was the easy part. By the end of the 30-day study period the authors had a library of more than 600,000 photos which they had to sort through and analyse.
Machine learning techniques grouped the images into four domains: medication management, dietary intake, meal preparation and physical activity. This process had mixed results. It was most successful in identifying diet-related photos (an average of 49% of the time), followed by information on meals (average 40%) and physical activity (average 31%). Drug adherence was the least precise, with an average of only 6%. This may be because prescriptions come in so many different forms—pill strips, bottles, sprays and puffers—making them hard to recognise.
“The sorting is actually extremely difficult,” admitted Dr. Cartledge. She and her colleagues enlisted the help of artificial intelligence experts at Ireland’s Dublin City University to build a more specific platform. Eventually, the team envisions a relatively low-cost venture using a search engine platform and reusable cameras.
The sheer number of images was a limitation, acknowledged the author. And the heart failure findings may not be applicable to other populations, however the study methodology could be implemented for other chronic disease populations. Members of the study group were older, had advanced disease and came from a lower socioeconomic neighbourhood. The author predicted that the system, once refined, will be most helpful for guiding newly diagnosed patients.
“This is the first step,” Dr. Cartledge said. “Patients are happy to wear it. We can see the context of the challenges they face. The next step is to build an artificial intelligence platform to sort the images out in a quick and meaningful way so healthcare practitioners can use it. We’re entering a new frontier.”
Exercise may improve memory in heart failure patients
The abstract “Seeing is believing: the feasibility and acceptability of using wearable cameras to enhance self-management of heart failure” will be presented during Nursing and Allied Health Professions Investigator Award, Saturday 31 August at 12:40 to 13:40 in Reykjavik-Village 2.

A leach field is a sewage system ( αποφραξεις αθηνα )that is attached to every drain in your home. These drains may get backed up with solid waste when they should drain out liquid waste. The reason it becomes solid is simply because over time all of the liquid soaps, detergents and actual waste builds up. As a homeowner, you want to prevent this from happening and keep it running smoothly to avoid destruction.
Maintaining your drainage system is very important. If not treated properly, it may abruptly malfunction. Foul odors, swampy lawns, and back-up in your tubs and toilets may occur. This is preventable with proper care and maintenance by using a granular product. This will help you avoid expensive repair costs on your leach field and possible lawn repair. Both can be very costly and you may even have to leave your home for a few days.
The fact that you have a leach field is not the issue. This system is just as good as any other type of drainage system. Nonetheless, you use your leach field system more than you realize. When you do laundry, when you use the shower, toilet, sink, etc. Without knowing it, you’re slowly building up solid waste while doing these day-to-day activities. By adding treating your leach field to your routine, you can avoid any problems.
I would never literally go into my leach field and clean it out, nor would I want to pay thousands of dollars for a restoration or repair job. But I will do my research and find the proper product within the industry of septic treatments. And find the easiest most efficient product on the market.
Regardless of the price it has to be more cost effective then paying a professional. I have not chosen a product yet, but I have realized that for my leach field a liquid treatment is probably a poor choice because liquid detergents, soaps and shampoos are what’s adding to the build up of solid waste. I may be wrong, but it sounds about right to me.
So my goal is for whomever has a leach field to hopefully follow me and research and add information about the products we end up finding to treat our leach field drain system. Because no matter how rich or poor you are, we all want to save money and protect our homes. So lets do the proper research and end up figuring out the leader in leach field treatment.

It was more than just terrifying for me to graduate this May and then start working. Like it was a new world and I somehow didn’t think I belong there. Every time my friends used to tell me “Oh man! Can’t wear shorts to office, you will have to come help me shop! ” , I always used to feel that how can shorts or skirts define a girl’s credibility in office.
Most of the times my friends would say “You know shorts won’t work in the corporate world” and I would always be astonished and left bewildered. I mean why not? Why can’t we as women wear what we feel like instead of being restricted to a uniform?
But then again there are two sides to what I used to think and somehow made peace with the fact that corporate offices do have a kind of uniform and it is okay, just like in schools though, but I guess it’s okay. Not for me because I am so happy to be belonging to Fashion industry where you can wear what you want and be what you want.
But I have seen my friends, my roommate, struggle to look out for good formals but I guess I have finally found their miracle brand. This blog post is not only talking about style but mostly the brand and it’s amazing quality and affordability. Yes I am talking about Marie Claire.
Blog post features the most amazing brand I have come across in terms of quality and sustainability. You guys might have heard about the magazine Marie Claire, but it’s also an apparel brand and it has been recently launched in India few months ago.
Both the looks have been inspired by how one can wear really comfortable and buy quality yet really affordable clothes for work and look extremely stylish. The entire Marie Claire collection is exclusively available on Myntra.
It’s not hard at all to look stylish yet very comfortable at work, If you are wearing Marie Claire girls!
Time to make your 9 to 5 look amazing!
And one little thing that I would say to my readers, Wear what you want in your office and let’s not let the society judge our credibility by the clothes we would wear to office. We know we can rock a skirt and still be hard working right?
